New Jersey’s Catholic governor signs assisted-suicide law
April 16, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: New Jersey’s Governor Phil Murphy has signed into law a bill that allows for physician-assisted suicide. The governor, who identifies himself as Catholic, said that he prayed over his decision and concluded that although he does not endorse suicide “I cannot deny this alternative to those who may reach a different conclusion.” Bishop James Checchio of Metuchen called the law “a brazen attack against the sanctity of human life.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
